Matthew P. Montaño, CFLE

MFT Intern, Certified Family Life Educator

Matthew’s background gives him a unique perspective on life. He comes from a very diverse family of Mexican and Native American cultures as well as varying religious backgrounds.  Although he is currently a practicing member of the LDS faith, he grew up Catholic and is very a-tune to different beliefs and the questions that arise in the polarizing debate of religion.  He is a California native and as such loves the ocean and In-N-Out.  He moved to Utah for school in 2012.  While in Utah he met his lovely wife and married in 2013.

Matthew has always had a passion for helping others get through stressful situations; growing up he was the “go-to source” for many of his friends who were dealing with family, relationship, or social issues. By advising and counseling his peers, his passion for therapy grew.  He took his passion further by dedicating himself to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

Matthew graduated Magna Cum Laude from Utah Valley University with a Bachelors Degree in Behavioral Science – Family Studies Emphasis.  Matthew became a Certified Family Life Educator during his time at UVU through the National Council on Family Relations.  While he was attending UVU, Matthew was able to develop two programs for individuals who are dealing with pornography addictions and for their loved ones who have been affected.

He also worked on multiple research studies involving sexuality and sexual abstinence.  This work culminated with the research team presenting their findings at the 2016 National Council on Family Relations Conference in Minnesota.  After completing his Bachelor’s degree, Matthew went on to pursue his Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at NorthCentral University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. He has maintained his enthusiasm for helping others by dedicating himself to excellence in his field.  Matthew belongs to the Phi Theta Kappa and the Delta Kappa honors societies.
